  • This board I bought is a Lush Mako made by the British company Lush Longboards it is a 44 pintail shape board made from maple with Sabre trucks and Cult Classic wheels
  • One of the best things I've found about longboarding is the fact that once you have bought the board it's free and you can go out and ride at any time anywhere as long as there is a pavement or road you can just go and do it unlike snowboarding where you have to wait for snow, travel to the hills and pay for lift passes
  • The hardest thing I found when I got this was stopping it without just running off but now I've got the hang of foot breaking and sliding the board I can get get some speed up on the board
  • The one bad thing about longboarding is pavements and roads hurt a lot more than water or snow so if you do fall there's more chance of injuries so if anyone is considering buying a longboard I would highly recommend that you wear skate pads and a decent helmet for protection especially when you're starting out
  • This board cost me £140 when I bought it and although it's not the cheapest board out there I would say it's a good price for what you get and better than buying a cheap board then spending a fortune upgrading the parts

      I started longboarding because it’s a great crossover sport for surfers or snowboarders looking for something to do when they can’t get to the snow or surf.

      This board I bought is a Lush Mako made by the British company Lush Longboards it is a 44″ pintail shape board made from maple with Sabre trucks and Cult Classic wheels. The boards are basically a very large skateboard with wide trucks which are designed to carve and turn like a surfboard or snowboard which makes them great fun for bombing down hills. The wheels are larger than a skateboards and a softer compound which means that the ride is much smoother than a normal skateboard these wheels will easily roll over pavement cracks and small stones that would have you stopping dead and flying off a normal skateboard.

      One of the best things I’ve found about longboarding is the fact that once you have bought the board it’s free and you can go out and


      ride at any time anywhere as long as there is a pavement or road you can just go and do it unlike snowboarding where you have to wait for snow, travel to the hills and pay for lift passes.

      The board took me a little while to get used to although I snowboard and surf there is still a bit of a learning curve with the longboard. The hardest thing I found when I got this was stopping it without just running off but now I’ve got the hang of foot breaking and sliding the board I can get get some speed up on the board. The one bad thing about longboarding is pavements and roads hurt a lot more than water or snow so if you do fall there’s more chance of injuries so if anyone is considering buying a longboard I would highly recommend that you wear skate pads and a decent helmet for protection especially when you’re starting out.


      • I love the fact that I can go out and get on a board without having to drive to the surf or wait for snow on the hills now I can just walk out my front door and go.I find that using this board regularly really helps with my balance and uses a lot of the same muscle groups as surfing and snowboarding and it’s also a great way to get outdoors and keep fit if you prefer board sports to running or cycling. These boards are also excellent for commuting around town even on flat land you can get up a fair bit of speed with the Mako which makes it much faster than walking and a lot more fun than public transport.

        This board is pretty much an all rounder you can carve with it, bomb down hills or just cruise around there are a few different types of board available such as downhill boards designed for racing and boards

        designed for sliding or tricks. I chose this board because I wanted a board that could do a bit of everything and the Mako fitted the bill.

        Lush Longboards have pretty decent components at a reasonable price and are well built after 6 months the board is still in good condition apart from a couple of minor nicks in the nose and a couple of scuffs on the bottom. The only thing I have replaced on the board were the wheels after several months of almost daily use and only because they had flat spots from sliding them.The only other thing I do is take the bearings out and regrease them regularly.

        I would happily recommend this board to anyone looking to start longboarding. This board cost me £140 when I bought it and although it’s not the cheapest board out there I would say it’s a good price for what you get and better than buying a cheap board then spending a fortune upgrading the parts.
